El Triangulo Shut Down by Health Dept.

A Colombian restaurant in the heart of Sunnyside was closed by the health department last month and has yet to reopen.

El Triangulo Bakery & Restaurant, located at 44-08 Greenpoint Ave., was shuttered on Sept. 19 on the account of two violations:  “food content surface not properly maintained” and “food protection certificate not held by supervisor of food operations.”

While these violations seem arcane, the restaurant has been slapped with many violations that are very easy to grasp.

In April, inspectors reported that “there is evidence of roaches–or live roaches–present in the facility’s food and/or non-food areas.” Additionally, the “facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to vermin exist.”

Furthermore, the restaurant was shut down by the health department on March 2, 2007, for “evidence of mice, or live mice, present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas.”

On Monday, the owner (or manager) was in the store. Ironically, he was cleaning up the place!
